Easy Double Chocolate Mousse Dessert


Spoonfuls of deep, creamy chocolate.  Now that’s the way to impress your sweetie (or sweeties)!

This dessert is inspired by one I had while eating out a few weeks ago.  There’s something sweet about individual servings.  I think it shows you’ve taken a little extra time to make it special.

I call recipes like this one “cheater recipes”.  It’s the best kind of cheating.  You end up with an impressive and delicious dessert for about $4 for 6 servings.  Much less than a similar dessert would cost when eating out and it’s every bit as decadent.

It starts with these ingredients:

Easy Double Chocolate Mousse Dessert

Serves: Makes 6-8 servings, depending on the size of dessert cups you use.

  • 2 boxes Jello Chocolate Mousse + milk to make according to package directions
  • 1 package (8x8 pan) brownie mix + ingredients to bake according to package directions
  • whipped cream
  • cocoa for garnish
  1. Mix mousse and bake brownies according to package directions. Allow brownies to cool and mousse to chill.
  2. Choose small dessert cups or parfait glasses. Cut brownies to fit bottom of cup. I used a drinking cup as a round cutter for the brownies.
  3. Spoon chilled mousse over brownie.
  4. Spread whipped cream over mousse.
  5. Dust the top with cocoa, if desired. I used a small wire strainer to dust the cocoa.
